Venue: San Siro

League Form:

Milan: D, L, D, W, D

Genoa: D, D, W, W, L

7th place Milan come into this game after an average run of results, and some resentment towards referring decisions coming against Juventus and Fiorentina last week. 9 points separate Milan from Atalanta and the final CL qualification spots, but without luck and form changing it seems like yet another year without the glamorous elite competition for the red and black.

Genoa sits 18th in the league but has had a slight upturn in results with only 1 loss in the previous 5, and showed a lot of grit falling short to a strong Lazio side in round 25.

Head to Head:

Milan W, D, W, W, W

Genoa L, D, L, L, L

14 points set the two teams aside coming into this fixture, with Milan eager to fight towards any European football but it will be another difficult game as Genoa will want to do everything they can to avoid relegation and falling into a last set of games were anything can happen.

Players to Watch

Rebic

Rebic has been scoring goals regularly bringing his tally to 6 in 14 games this season. In Serie A he has been finding his form and showing his pace and strength over the past months. With a lot left to prove and his next club yet to be decided, Rebic will want to perform and show the world what he can offer.

Schone

The dynamic midfielder made a shock move to Genoa from Ajax and has been involved in making their team tick. He has been offering more than a simple passing game, trying to improve Genoa’s attacking front, and will again try to be the focal point going forward for the side.

Prediction: AC Milan 2–1 Genoa
